Here’s Why The Best Leaders Focus On Personal Growth

It is our highest purpose as human beings to live with focused commitment to our inner growth. We create eudaimonic contentment (i.e., deep, sustained contentment) when we forego immediate pleasures—such as the next shiny object (materialism, workaholism, sex, drug etc). ‘Eudaimonia’ is a Greek word associated with Aristotle and often mistranslated as ‘happiness’—which has contributed to misunderstandings about what happiness is. Some experts say Aristotle meant ‘well-being’ when he wrote that humans can attain eudaimonia by fulfilling their potential(WSJ).” This article interview explores how you create a deep level of contentment and fulfillment for yourself in your business life.

The cost of perfectionism

Because you believe this lie – that you need to be perfect – you act accordingly and create a restricted life of struggle for yourself, and typically also for others. It doesn’t serve you! Perfectionism actually pushes everything that you want away from you. It is in imperfection that you will excel as a business leader and in all your relationships. When you can embrace and not only accept, but delight in your own and other’s imperfection, you will soar. And you will support others in excelling, too. The perfectionist voice in your head tells you You are not good enough You are not wise enough You don’t know enough Who are you to …… (fill in the blank with your dreams)… Read more »

Become a whole person in your business life

An executive client of mine based in Boulder, CO USA hired a business resume-building expert to help with the next phase of developing her Curriculum Vitae. When my client brought me in on the issue, she had just received the first draft back from the business resume strategist, and she just wasn’t feeling seen in the writing on the page.

While it may seem simple to figure out, many people are so inundated with the daily demands of life that they have lost a connection to themselves—and when asked what makes them happy, they can’t quite answer. For instance, I recently asked a friend what she does to nurture herself. With a perplexed expression she looked at me and said, “I am a mom. I don’t have time to take care of myself.” In addition to being a mother, this same person is a highly successful business owner whose marketing agency has happened to have won numerous, prestigious awards… Read more »
